Dr Montessori used the term ‘Absorbent Mind’ to describe the unique capacity of the mind during early childhood (birth to 6 years) to absorb knowledge effortlessly and indiscriminately.
The Absorbent Mind is supported through key learning areas such as sensorial, practical life, language, self expression, mathematics & science, cultural appreciation, physical eduaction and social learning.
This is Montessori's last book, and the most in-depth discussion of her theory based on decades of scientific observation of children. It discusses the special mind of the child, and how nurturing the special potentialities that only children have is the only way to change (and save) humanity. Montessori's theories are particularly interesting today in light of recent neurological discoveries, especially those related to critical periods and language.
This book is a must read for anyone considering entering into the Montessori profession. Includes all the images and charts.
Buy the real thing and enjoy the journey into authentic Montessori. It will be well worth the extra time and investment.
